Fairly enjoyable comedy short
15 December 2005 | by (Derby, England) – See all my reviews

I'd never heard of Leon Errol until The Jitters came on BBC 2 recently so I taped it to see what it was and wasn't disappointed.

After an argument with his wife, Errol gets drunk and decides to take up dancing lessons. The best part of this short is where Errol is mistaken for a dance teacher by some ladies and they copy all his drunken antics. Their real teacher then turns up and the ladies get their revenge on Errol.

One annoying thing about this is that Errol has a broken cigarette stuck in his mouth throughout the movie.

Though not brilliant, The Jitters is good for a laugh.

Rating: 2 and a half stars out o f5.
